​If you won’t be using your tracker for a while, you can turn off Blaze, One, and Surge trackers to preserve battery life. For more tips, see Can I improve my tracker's battery life?

To turn your Blaze off and on:

  1. Swipe right to left on the home screen to the Settings screen. 
  2. Tap Settings and scroll down to Shutdown.
  3. Tap Shutdown and confirm.
  4. To turn your Blaze back on, press any button.
  5. Sync your tracker as soon as you turn it back on. If you don't, the time may be incorrect. 

To turn your One off and on:

  1. Put your One in the charging cable and plug it in.
  2. Hold the button for 12 seconds. The battery icon will disappear after about 5 seconds but keep holding the button a few seconds longer. Your One will turn off and you can remove it from the charging cable.
  3. To turn your One back on, press and hold the button for a few seconds.

To turn your Surge off and on:

  1. Press the Home button (left) and then swipe to the Settings screen.
  2. Tap Settings and swipe until you see Shutdown.
  3. Tap the arrow on the bottom right.
  4. Tap the checkmark to confirm shutdown.
